With a HDMI interface already available can a digital TV signal change the way you use your console?
This is brilliant for those who don't have a sky box or something similar makes it easier to game and watch TV
It just does everything.
Jealous, hope this comes to NZ. I won't be forced to watch The Block before I can start gaming.
I want that in the US, I'm looking to ditch my cable box.
I'll be surprised if it releases in the US, Sony never brought their PlayTV to the US last gen, I think there just isn't much demand in markets with such high cable and satellite TV penetration.
its great I love it
Does the US even have free over the air channels?
Hard to receive now. Thank the lobbyist and THEIR elected officials
It's still there. I would also use it if it came to the U.S.
Yes. While you wont get the channels like TBS or TNT you will still be able to get your local TV channels over the air. Networks like NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, PBS all have local affiliates in every city in the US.
In Alaska you can get about 15 free channels. Good thing I have cable.
Yeah over the air HD is available now, (and there are alot of channles) but like Software-Lover said Lobbyists are trying to put an end to that. I expect this movement to be greatly intensified now that Republicans have control of the House and the Senate.
Does the console need to change its name now as it's no longer "all in one"? First external hdd and now this? Hardly all in one.
The xbox one could pay for itself if they can incorporate DVR functionality somehow. I pay 9.99 a month to rent a DVR from the cable company.
I would imagine the cable providers would flip their lid if that happened. I'm sure MS thought of it. There's probably some kind of contract in place for MS not to offer DVR.
Hmmm. I wasnt a big fan tbh of the idea watching tv and playing just for myself. I always thought i would just not be able to concentrate on the game. Lol But having the option of allowing others to continue watching their program whilst you can play your game is def a good idea. Although i think the person watching the tv would prob be jealous we have the bigger view lol.
